Firstly, I have to apologize for the lack of video this week. I would like to make it up to you by promising a brand spankin’ new video on Tuesday. I’m going to teach you guys how to be a Smart Cookie in the kitchen! And this is only the beginning, my friends. I have a stockpile of Smart Cookie tips to dish out. So grab some paper and a pen; you’re going to want to take notes!
And did you know that if you subscribe to my Youtube channel, you can watch my newest videos a day before everyone else? That’s kind of a big deal.
Speaking of big deals, this week was chock-full of finger-lickin’ good food, and I would be a fool not to recap it all with you.
Let’s review, shall we?
- Italian Cheese Fries
Homemade, perfectly cooked french fries smothered in melted mozzarella, italian herbs, and garlic.
- Guilt-Free Pizza Party
Who doesn’t love a pizza party? Now you can party without the guilt.
- Biscoff Swirl Chocolate Chip Cookies
Thick & chewy chocolate chunks cookies laced with a swirl of Biscoff.
- Sweet & Spicy Mexican Beans

I think my favorite of the week was that Buster Bar Ice Cream Cake. That was hands down the best ice cream cake I’ve ever had! Carvel can’t compare.
What was your favorite recipe of the week?

If you like Smart Cookie on Facebook, then you’ve might’ve seen this Smart Cookie original yesterday:
Random question: does anyone else have an inability to stop eating when food is in front of them? My lack of self-control is getting out of hand. Whenever I bake or cook, I feel compelled to consume mounds of what I’m making long before it’s finished. For example, when I bake cookies, I will eat a dozen cookies’ worth of dough before any cookies even hit the oven. It’s becoming an issue. Tell me I’m not alone…
I also have a habit of eating plain cooked pasta while I wait for the sauce to cook. That happened to me when I made this incredible cheesy creation:
